. but with hillary clinton and joe biden both in the news this week you see it's never too early for presidential politics for a lot of these folks. >> and richard wolffe, how do you see this issue that's developed? we saw on "meet the press" this weekend talking about the surprise that hillary clinton is so obviously and kind of openly running for president. as you know, richard, on this show panelists are not allowed to even consider the possibility that hillary is not already running. >> bear that in mind. >> does she have to make it so obvious? >> it's an interesting media reaction. what -- i mean, it seems that no one is struggling against the idea that people on the republican side can make it obvious. why is hillary clinton under some kind -- or should she be under any kind of limitation on making it obvious? >> she shouldn't be under any limitation at all. and to be fair, we're talking about world affairs and foreign policy. it's actually very different from laying the groundwork for a national domestic political campaign, where as a clinton the world has moved on somewhat since those day
at the white house. vice president joe biden is here at the white house. chuck hagel, the chairman of the joint chief, martin dempsey, so all of that giving an indication that the president is close to making a decision, but because white house officials are saying this is not about imminent or commenced operations, perhaps we will be hearing about something else. we should also note this administration was set to start briefing members of the senate today, members of the house tomorrow, to fully get them up to speed on what is happen ng syria and so, it will be interesting to find out whether or not the president's comments have any impact. the other thing we should point out and this is just a small, minor thing, is that according to a note distributed to reporters here at the white house, a telepromter has been set up in the rose garen for the president's address. i only say that because yesterday, his comments were very much off the cuff. he had some notes in front of him, but he was not reading from prepared remarks, but this statement indicates that perhaps he will be doing that this afte
called it a moral obscenity and culminated by today where joe biden said there's no doubt the assad regime is responsible. >> mike, the american people are wary of any military involvement in syria. how does the president sell this military action? >> what's important to keep in mind john, this is the second time this year that the obama administration has judge assad to have deployed these chemical weapons. the president has been very hesitant to get involved in the course of the three years of civil conflict under withering response from john mccain on capitol hill. there has been this hesitancy and obviously a war weariness on the part of the american public. i think a good gaining of where the milk stands -- gauge of where the public stands, the point might be academic bit that point john. >> mike thank you. >>> momentum for military intervention, is building in syria as well. president says he's ready to punish those who gassed sifnlings and the british government recalled people to placement. >> david cameron cut short his summer holiday and returned to london to decide what a
the president there with more to come this hour as the president makes remarks with vice president joe biden in biden's hometown of scranton, pennsylvania. but right now, we want to go to washington and naacp and chairman emeritus julian bond. thank you so much for being here. we want to get into a little bit of the politics. i would be remiss if we didn't talk about the march on washington, the 50th anniversary coming up this weekend on into wednesday. as a veteran of that movement, can you give us a big picture where we are 50 years on? >> well, we're on -- i would say about halfway to dr. king's dream if that far. but what he dreamed about hasn't been realized yet. the poll in the "new york times" today shows enormous gasp what white and black people feel about racial progress. it strikes us as a country struggling hard to do the right thing but not succeeding so far. >> what do you guess is behind that disparity between the way white americans and many black americans feel about the progress in race relations given the fact that we do have our first african-american president elected wit

the president said he would do when he was a candidate in 2007-2008. let's remember the vice president joe biden, running for president, and in 2007 he was at a new hampshire campaign event where he said as senate foreign relations committee chairman at the time, then president bush moved forward with an attack on iran, try to prevent them from getting nuclear weapons and did without congressional approval, joe biden said he would personally lead impeachment charges against then president bush. we see a much different situation going on now. where they are moving forward without congressional approval. you are right. there is pressure. it is not just john cornyn who is significant. not just a rank and file, a leader, the whip, behind mitch mcconnell, the leader, number one. have you democrats as well. joe manchin of west virginia came out last might and said, mr. president, you cannot move forward with any military force without first getting a debate and vote in the house and senate. now, what is the likelihood of that? highly unlikely because we talked to officials in both parties and got lawm
, a number of republicans have done it that way. on the democratic side joe biden, a guy named joe biden jumped into the race early back in was it, '93 and then got out quickly. getting in early, jim, is not necessarily a guaranty of success. >> no. look, every democrat thought that teddy kennedy would get the nomination, probably in '76. and then in 80 and 84. because he was such a huge name, chappaquiddick notwithstanding. mark shields, veteran democratic pundit likes to joke he was first guy to plan the inauguration for president muskie in 1973. of course he was the democrat who lost to george mcgovern in the primary. there are 30 twist and turns to come. the jon, the fact you're praising iowa's farmland tells me that, gleam in your eye. >> muskie had not shed a tear he might have been president if he hadn't cried in new hampshire. many people may think hillary is foregone conclusion which may not be true but others in the field could be easily running for vice president. as you pointed out, joe biden started really early, he became the choice of barack obama to be vp. so that could b
.n. security council condemning the chem wall weapons attack and vice president joe biden using some of the strongest language yet at an event yesterday. >> there's no doubt who is responsible for this heinous use of chemical weapons in syria. the syrian regime. the president believes and i believe that those who use chemical weapons against defenseless men, women, and children should and must be held accountable. >> nbc chief foreign correspondent richard engel is in turkey near the border of syria. are they talking about a military strike there? >> reporter: they certainly are and turkey would be a willing participant in this. turkey said it's willing to pay any price to see bashar al assad go. the question now is what is the role of the u.n. and the u.n. investigators? today in damascudamascus, the t from the u.n. left their hotel after a 24-hour delay. they went to the suburbs outside of damascus and continued their work. the united nations says that these investigations should continue and that a full process should be allowed to run its course before any military action is take
a moment. i'm going to revisit with you in just a moment but we have vice president joe biden who is speaking in houston before the american legion convention. let's listen in. >> everyone acknowledges their use. no one doubts that innocent men, women and children have been the victims of chemical weapons attacks in syria. and there is no doubt who is responsible for this heinous use of chemical weapons in syria. the syrian regime. for we know that the syrian regime are the only ones who have the weapons, have used chemical weapons multiple times in the past, have the means of delivering those weapons, have been determined to wipe out exactly the places that were attacked by chemical weapons and instead of allowing u.n. inspectors immediate access, the government has repeatedly shelled the sites of the attack and blocked the investigation for five days. at president obama's direction, all of us and his national security team have been in close touch with our foreign counterparts. the president believes, and i believe, that those who use chemical weapons against defenseless men, wo
what we heard barack obama and joe biden as vice-presidential candidate in 2008. at one point joe biden said in 2007 if then president bush moved forward with an attack on iran, separate from syria in the middle east, joe biden would lead impeachment charges against the president. they have gone a long way from that. what they're saying now, there won't be a vote in congress but that instead what the president will do is consult with congress, this phone call at 6:00 p.m. eastern and other phone calls that have already happened. there's a lot of intense action as the president faces a lot of pressure on this decision whether he will move forward or not. you heard him in the pbs interview saying it could be a shot across the bow against syria. there are military experts say a shot across the bow sounds symbolic. they wand to hear from the president directly. we haven't from him beyond the press interview and cnn interview last week directly from the military what the mission would be. >> and it's growing, bipartisan push for questions, push for answers and consultation with congress and
the united states government, white house, secretary kerry, joe biden, the higher the risk people say whatever the united states is saying is to support israel, western tendencies. there is all about in the mix. whatever we say is not how things are seen in the region. stuart: what is the feeling amongst muslims? one group has attacked another and killed them with poison gas. is there no repulsion here? >> most have been here before. this happened in 2007. yes, it's ironic, yes, it's hard to understand, but israel has done anything similar to what saddam hussein or asad in syria has done. there would be protests every day up and down the street, but mostly broadly muslim violence, maybe 20% of the population globally. stuart: muslims killing muslims by the millions now guessing by the hundreds, no demonstration on the street, nothing happens. we can't understand that. >> it is human nature. when the irish killed the irish, it is a different response. stuart: it is israel, america, the wicked christians, the jews. speaker that is how the middle east acts. it is easy to blame the old cr
? >> the latest comments we have done in this coming from the white house pool from vice president joe biden, he was shouted a question and ask whether the french were on board with a syria attack, joe biden responded by saying i know everybody is on board and that is all he said, there are plenty who aren't on board. and the fringe made plenty of statements, the questions we had for the past week remain. where will it be and when will it be and we hope to get some type of guidance from the secretary at 12:30. what we expect this afternoon is the release of this intelligence report, that shows the use of chemical weapons in syria so john kerry could be commenting on that. we are not sure what they plan on laying out here. it or what timeline we're dealing with. and he is going to russia for the g 20 summit. and he would not want to launch an attack overseas. you want to be here in the united states. that is guess where, speculation, people commenting, we are not sure if that is the thought of the white house that this is the deliberative process, still wants to get congress on board, and a major
!, democracynow.org, the war and peace report. i'm amy goodman. and vice obama president joe biden met with a group of tall -- top lawmakers thursday to discuss growing concerns about the nsa's broad surveillance programs. the meeting occurred just hours after russia granted nsa whistleblower edward snowden tipperary asylum for a year. snowden was the source behind a number of recent weeks about the nsa's ability to conduct surveillance across the globe. most recently, the guardian newspaper revealed the existence of a secret program called xkeyscore that gives nsa analysts real-time access to "nearly everything a typical user does on the internet" including e-mails, chats, and browsing history. the guardian has also revealed the u.s. government has paid more than $150 million to the q over they agency gch last few years to secure access to and influence over britain's intelligence gathering programs. on thursday, white house press secretary jay carney criticized russia for granting snowden asylum. >> we are extremely disappointed the russian government would take this step despite our
with joe biden the other day and the subject came up, 2016, and although she didn't say, joe, i hope you're not going to run, she certainly made it clear to him, according to my reporting, of people who are familiar with what went on during that breakfast, that he avoided telling her that he would not run. in other words, he left the definite impression he was thinking seriously of running. >> it must have stunned him a bit then, she also had lunch with the president. >> right. >> it looks pretty clear where his allegiance lies. the republicans are getting ready for 2014. and they haven't declared victory 2014, they haven't got a great big motto. they have up in their meeting in boston talking about making it happen. they don't define it. >> they don't tell us how. >> right. >> they've got a lot to explain and a lot to energize their base which is precisely what it's been for the past two presidential elections, that is, 37% identifying themselves as republicans, they got a lot to energize. >> they do. and clinton -- the clintons meantime are actually piling up hundreds of millions of do
and investment companies." >>> the vice-president joe biden breaking news now. just spoke about the situation in syria just minutes ago as the white house considers what action to take against bashar al-assad's regime. >> no one doubts that innocent men, women, and children, have been the victims of chemical weapons attacks in syria. and there is no doubt who is responsible for this heinous use of chemical weapons in syria. the syrian regime. >> trace: the first time anybody from the administration has said absolutely no doubt chemical weapons were used, and that they know who used them. vice-president biden added he and president obama believe those who use c weapons against defenseless men, women and children, ought to be held accountable. >>> most folks would choose not to roll around in glass anywhere but in florida lawmakers are considering grinding its up and spreading it on the beaches. experts say decades of beach erosion and decades of dredging up sands to repreparish the beaches have caused sand to go away, and since the sunshine state soaks up billions of dollars of tourism for the
secretary kerry said yesterday was a moral obscenity. the white house felt -- joe biden was speaking in houston, texas, he says there is no doubt that they were used, were these chemical weapons, and there is little doubt who used them. >> for we know that the syrian regime, the only ones who have the weapons have used chemical weapons multiple times in the past, have the means of delivering those weapons, have been determined to wipe out exactly the places that were attacked by chemical weapons. >> all indications point to a cruise missile attack of some sort, perhaps arias sets, allied arias sets as well. we don't know when or who, that coalition is still forming. we don't know what the end goal is. all we do know is what jay carney said today. we know what it's not. >> we are also very much engaged in an effort to support the opposition in its struggle with the assad regime, as the assad regime continues to try to massacre it's a own people in an effort to maintain power. and it's our firm conviction -- [ inaudible ] but this deliberation and the actions that we are contemplating
here. >>> the white house is taking new action on gun control now. have the joe biden announced would executive actions aimed at keeping more military surplus weapons out of the country and getting rid of a system that lets buyers avoid background checks by registering guns to corporations. the vice-president says the moves are simple, straightforward, and common sense, the critics say it won't keep criminals from getting guns. doug is live in washington. explain more about the plan. what is going to happen here? >> trace, it's a way for the administration to circumvent the lack of legislative well for more gun control by doing it through executive action. the first of the two new proposed regulations would end the policy where military weapons sold or handed over to u.s. allies abroad, are then reimported back into the u.s. by private sellers. the second proposed regulation would keep people who cannot pass a background check from circumventing the law by registering certain guns to a corporation or a trust. it would do so by requiring people associated with those trusts to be finger
congressional okay, joe biden in 2007 said he would personally push for impeachment charges. the obama-biden team has had an evolution in the last few years about getting a congressional okay. >> interesting word for it. ed henry, thank you. the united nations says it wants western leaders to wait for a report from the u.n. weapons inspectors before taking any military action. those inspectors went back to the scene of the alleged war crime today we're told. "fox report's" chief correspondent jonathan hunt live now. jonathan, the u.s. does not necessarily need the u.n.'s permission for this. >> no, it doesn't, but like president bush in the run-up to the iraq war president obama might feel that it is worth being seen to try to get some sort of consensus at the united nations security council. u.n. officials certainly made the point today that they believe that effort is worthwhile and indeed necessary. listen. >> i do know that president obama, the american administration, are not known to be trigger happy. what they will decide, i don't know. >> the problem with bringing in the securi
with susan rice, samantha power, the new u.s./u.n. ambassador, joe biden, john brennan, martin dempsey, the inner circle, called the situation troublesome. the options are limited. i think folks are saying cruise missiles from nearby navy ships may be one lead option. but in terms of will and political power to do something and political sort of -- any kind of impetus from -- to do something, i'm not clear that the president really has much in the wheelhouse in terms of being able to call on some sort of outrage from the american public, though i think as an american the situation over there is outrageous and untenable. >> right. he doesn't. i think the latest poll had something like 7% of people wanting to get involved with this, which is, of course, a legacy of iraq. the evidence that we might be inching towards something like that, is that the talk about how reluctant we are to do it is increasing. whenever we're sharing with the world how reluctant we are to attack something, you know, you can pretty much count on it, we're going to attack something pretty soon. we've been reluctan
of a key international norm that barack obama and joe biden and other world leaders have come together several years ago to prevent and to try to prohibit and create a global allergy against the proliferation and use of weapons of mass destruction, and they believe that not to respond to this case -- it's a very different case than the ongoing questions about assad and internal instability and, you know, the fight for syria. this is about a global norm, and that is why they are going to basically punish parts of the syrian government and try to create a capacity. that's odd about this is that they are basically telegraphing to the world that they're going to do it, and one will have to assess after the fact whether or not syria was able to harden, move, or hide assets that they fear will be attacked. it's not often, i mean, if you were in a perfect military planning incident, you would attack without notice. the obama administration is giving very, very wide notice, in facts an attack is coming in my view. >> steve clemons. washington editor at large for the "atlantic" magazine and som
and corporations to undergo background checks. vice president joe biden calls the new regulations simple and straightforward. >> new policies are going to help keep military grade firearms off our streets and again, it's a simple common sense way to try to reduce gun violence in america. you may recall the administration's sweeping gun laws failed in the senate earlier this year. a statement about these latest steps the spokesperson for the national rifle association says, quote: the obama administration has once again completely missed the mark when it comes to stopping violent crime. same sex couples who get married legally in the united states will be able to file joint or federal fax returns beginning next month each if they move to a state where same sex marriage is not legal. that's according to the new rules at the internal revenue service and the treasury department issuing today. this comes after the supreme court recently struck down a key part of the defense of marriage act. under these new rules, the feds say they will treat legally married same sex couples as married for al
a forceful argument on that? >> well, i think that the joe biden and barack obama have invested a lot after the bush and cheney administration to come in and say these norms of the international order developing a stronger allergy to the proliferation and use of weapons of mass destruction across all chemical, biological and nuclear weapons, this is something that matters and needs to be restored. it's a defining effort by this administration. so i think the other thing is people like me have been skeptical of the president's moves in places like libya and his ability to keep that a small footprint military action and he delivered on that. i suspect that people like chuck hagel and the department of defense, denis mcdonough, his chief of staff, barack obama himself, have no enthuse wrachl about going to war again in the middle east. that makes us more compelling. iraq had an administration that wanted o run into war without evidence. this is a presidency reluctant to do this. but feeling not responding when such an international norm is collapsing, to take his back to the nightmares that us
to challenge her, joe biden on the democratic side and who is going to emerge on the republican side and the news media is going to be consumed with that and the press room behind me is going to be thinner and thinner and thinner for those daily bri briefings, less and less interest. so, it's enormous gamble. i can't help but think that the president and his aides looked at this and said, okay. there isn't a lot of support for this. we are getting some blow-back in congress. i still have a hard time thinking they couldn't just go ahead and do what they were going to do and let congress sort it out when they do finally, get around to returning to town. so i can't help come to the conclusion that they think they can win this vote, they think it's going to expose and exploit further divisions within the republican party. but again, getting back to the essential questions of life and death and national security here, for the president to repeatedly say that this is something in the core national interest of the united states and then to put it off for two weeks, you know, militarily, i d
for vice president joe biden's son. why he is undergoing tests and the medical history that could have doctors concerned. >> an addition to the first family. see the obama's new, adorable puppy. >> america's favorite mini-commander-in-chief. landing a big scoop and pretty coveted kiss. all ahead in "the skinny." it's tuesday, august 20th. >> announcer: from abc news, this is "world news now" with john muller and diana perez. >>> good tuesday morning. we are going to begin this half-hour with news of a significant arrest in egypt. spiritual leader of the muslim brotherhood in police custody. >> this comes as the u.s. is considering its options in the region. abc's karen travers joining us from washington with more on this. >> reporter: good morning, diana. good morning, john. secretary of defense chuck hagel admitted yesterday there isn't much the u.s. can do right now. this is up to the egyptian people. an uneasy calm in egypt, a break from the horrific violence last week. but a brazen daylight attack in the sinai peninsula. militants ambushed two buses carrying off duty police officer
people. big names including vice president joe biden, his wife jill and first lady michelle obama will fan out across the country as the insurance exchanges go online in a little more than a month. even former president bill clinton is being tapped to help out. he will speak about the law to a crowd in his home state of arkansas next week. let's talk about all this with paul gigot, the editorial page editor for "the wall street journal." interesting, paul, the website, "politico" wrote about this and here was the opening line. three years after signing obamacare into law, president barack obama finally looks eager to talk about it. why now? >> well, because d-day is arriving on october 1st. the exchanges are supposed to start and january 1st, the subsidy coverage begins. so it is do-or-die. they have to do it now or this thing could fail. jon: but the president has been selling us all along on what a great program this is going to be? >> well that hasn't persuaded the country. all polls show obamacare is still more unpopular than popular but now they don't have a choice. he need t
who has been outspoken on that and taken a leadership role, so has joe biden and the president of the united states, you might see the president evoking gay rights, gay marriage tomorrow. right before the election, he went to caesar chavez's grave, and prayed, barack obama and sat with the widow of caesar chavez. yes, we can, coming from the chavez movement. it might be an opportunity to bring the latino movement into the fold and have a talk about the poverty situation, that no one should be afraid of a midnight knock on the door. there's a lot of opportunity for the president. again, reread the second inaugural and i think this will almost be a component speech to the social justice part of what i thought was an excellent second inaugural. >> you know, it will be interesting to see how he ties the issues together. finally, james, i want to get to something i found interesting from "the washington post." they issued a mea culpa, turning out the "post" missed a lot of things in their coverage in 1963. they were forthcoming about this. the front page lead story in 1963 about the
laugh. but vice president joe biden told all of us. he said, if anybody a tax or house, just go outside with a double barrel shotgun, and fire both barrels in the air, which is very, very good advice, if it so happens you are being attacked by a flock of geese. [laughter] but let me tell you, that fight over guns -- in the early days and weeks, that fight looked unwinnable. the momentum was entirely with the president. all of the media told us it could not be won, and there were lots of senators on the edge, waiting. a handful of senators stood up and said, we will filibuster any legislation that amends the second amendment right to keep and bear arms. [applause] what happened next was exactly the same thing that happened with drones. what happened next was, the american people began getting involved, began tweeting, began calling their senators and saying, defend our bill of rights. let me tell you one of the most effective defenders we have of the second amendment is your senator, kelly ayotte. and any new york mayor -- [boos] who thinks he can come up here and believe the senator fro
happening, that killed, what we're seeing many people. vice president joe biden is saying there is is now doubt the assad regime is to blame and right now the u.s. has warships, four of them, in the mediterranean. crews missiles are ready to be fired but the obama administration has to still work out some of the details in considering how the assad regime will respond. our chief white house correspondent ed henry live at the white house with the very latest. ed, good morning to you. are they planning on getting congressional authorization first? >> reporter: it does not look like it, jamie. the situation getting worse by the hour. israel on high alert, worried about possible retaliation by the syrian regime. in the last few moments turkish foreign minister is being prepared and turkey is on high alert at this hour to protect turkish interests. vice president biden, becoming the latest and highest official here at the white house saying in fact they believe the syrian regime is responsible for that chemical weapons attack, inching to move forward on u.s. military action. remember in the 20
that joe biden made in that sound bite we just heard and other administration officials have made this week. >> do you think the u.s. credibility is at stake so now an attack is inevitable? >> nothing is inevitable where military action is concerned. any president or adviser to a president will tell you that. but everything we get here this week suggest this is on a very sustained momentum. the president is building the case not just within congress but also trying to communicate to other world leaders this is a violation of an international norm that has been standing since the early part of the 20th century. it cannot be ignored. and some form of military punishment must be exacted to underscore the international community's revulsion about the use of chemical weapons and to hold the syrian regime accountable. >> several lawmakers have called on obama to get congressional approval before launching an attack. where's the white house standing on dealing with congress and the u.n. on this? >> two things, anthony. the administration says it will consult with congress but doesn't necessarily n
an actual or imminent threat to the nation. that was then. vice president joe biden, when he was a senator back in 2007, in a different context going to war against iran, said this -- i want i want to make it clear, and i made it clear to the president, that if he takes the nation to war in iran without congressional approval, i will make it my business to impeach him. that's a fact. that is a fact. >> that is a fact. he said, that is a fact, if he goes to war against iran without congressional approval, i will call for his impeachment. you know, john, iran is a major supporter of syrian president assad. the iranians say they will retaliate itches that's one of the strategic calculations about how to do the military operation, one of the great skepticism you get in congress, you talk to retired diplomats and generals, can you deliver that blunt force on syria, as the president is plachbing, without causing a domino effect. look at a map, you know the whole gulf region right there. the administration is trying to come up with a plan that punishing syria without having a ripple effect. wolf,
was frequently criticized by joe biden and john kerry and barack obama, we're only missing chris dodd here, as somebody frequently criticized as being a unilateralist, while i oppose thes use of force against syria i am delight the obama administration is about to act aounilaterally without approval from the u.n. security council. we should take due note of that. >> almost like they put them aside like it's not that important when secretary kerry mentioned obstructionism. >> there are those particularly in europe who say you have to have authority to use force. there has to be some independent approval for what the obama administration is about to do. that's a very european approach to life. the american approach has always been fundamentally different. our approach is we have the right to act to defend american interests unless there's an express prohibition somewhere. there are no express prohibitions around here. as a matter of policy, i think this impending attack is a bad idea. as a matter of american authority we have all we need. i am delighted the obama administration may be on the

in scranton, pennsylvania, and it should be noted this is the hometown of vice president joe biden. jon? jon: and the president is going to have his work cut out for him later today. mike tobin, thank you. heather: still to come, talk about the one that didn't get away. this group of fishermen got quite a surprise when a massive fish jumped right into their boat. up next. ♪ for a strong bag that grips the can... get glad forceflex. small change, big difference. people wait for this promotion all year long. and now there are endless ways to love it... from crispy to spicy to savory.
